Little girls lose their mum in Keilor Downs tragedy — How to help
Over the weekend, a 32-year-old woman died in hospital after falling from a car in Keilor Downs.
The victim, Helena Broadbent, was five months pregnant with her third daughter at the time.
Helena died in hospital after an emergency C-section in a bid to save her unborn baby.
That baby, who has been named Helena, remains in hospital but is doing well.
She has two sisters: Sophie, 2, and Bella, 1.
Their father is due in court today, charged with dangerous driving causing death.
Their uncle and Helena’s brother, Paul Broadbent, is determined to support his little nieces and has started a campaign to do that.
I didn’t actually set this up, a friend of mine set this up … and got in contact with me.
“This is going to do a lot for the family with future medical costs for little Helena and funeral costs and the future of all the girls,” Mr Broadbent told Neil Mitchell.
